Life After Birth™
One-on-one support for the mother
With Molly Nourmand
During pregnancy, women are showered with so much love and attention. After the baby arrives, new moms are often left feeling discarded, invisible and expected to have it all figured out on day one of motherhood. The metamorphosis of becoming a mother is a delicate one. A safe cocoon is needed for the oftentimes awkward unfolding.
Molly Nourmand, licensed psychotherapist, yogini, and mother holds space for the complexity of this transition in her Postpartum Support Circle at WMN Space. In addition group facilitation, she offers individual and couples therapy that can help you navigate challenges that include, but are not limited to:
Birth complications/trauma, health issues with your baby including time spent in the NICU, experience with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs), discord with your partner and/or other relationships, breastfeeding issues, identity and/or body image issues, grief and loss issues.
It can be difficult to admit that there is dissonance between your expectation of motherhood and your lived experience, and yet reaching out for support is the first step to your recovery. Through her training with Postpartum Support International and experience of working with new mothers (and being a mother) Molly will help guide you through this exquisitely transformational time. Contact her for more information and to schedule a session.
MOLLY NOURMAND, LMFT
Molly Nourmand is a licensed psychotherapist, yogini and mother. Her multilayered lens brings healing, integration, and transformation to the lives of women through both group and individual therapy. Her approach is grounded in psychodynamic theory, and informed by over a decade of teaching yoga and meditation, as well as an ongoing exploration of mind-body practices including Somatic Experiencing and the Hakomi method. She received a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her master’s thesis titled, The Mythology and the Shadow of the Pill, examined the effects of hormonal birth control on women’s mood and libido. Due to unforeseen complications post-birth and challenges during her postpartum transition, Molly feels called to help women pick up the pieces of their lives and selves after being initiated into motherhood. She has translated her passion for working with new moms and couples into a specialty in her practice. She has completed the maternal mental health certificate training with Postpartum Support International. She created Life After Birth™ in the fall of 2017 and has been facilitating weekly support circles at WMN Space ever since.
